LIFE PATH 3
The Path of the Entertainer
Self-expression is your keynote. The sparkle and effervescence you generate wherever you go bolsters the morale of anyone feeling a bit low. This, plus the fact that you’re very sociable and entertaining to be around, helps you to win friends quite easily. With the exception of the rare individual who doesn’t understand you, or perhaps feels envy, most people enjoy your company and treasure your friendship. You do realize that life isn’t all fun and games; and though you enjoy them as much as anyone, you see things clearly and don’t waste time or energy on the unreal or ridiculous.
Intelligence and a very keen mind are your two great assets—use them well. You quickly and easily learn anything that catches you fancy; but once the knowledge is stored, you go on to other things, rather than delve into it deeply. This versatility is the foundation of the many talents you possess, which make it problematic at times to decide just what it is you wish to express. Enthusiasm reigns for a time, and you manage to transmit this excitement to others. Then suddenly your interest changes and you quickly go on to something else.
You’re used to, and enjoy, getting things your own way and doing exactly as you please. “What will be, will be” is your motto, and you don’t worry too much about tomorrow. This is fine as long as you don’t become so unconcerned that you neglect the things you should.
With your quick wit, the words you choose at times makes you seem a bit too critical of other people and their opinions. Take care, for you could unintentionally hurt those you love. Wit is an asset when used strictly in a humorous sense, and you’ve been endowed with a finely honed sense of humor that keeps you and yours cheerful.
Words—and your clever way of using them–stand you in good stead in any field where verbal communication is necessary. You’ll succeed in any of these areas without much effort on your part. Language and its use are like food for your soul. You thrive on intellectual pursuits and like to pass on what you’ve learned to others who are less knowledgeable. Music, dance, and the arts are very important to you.
Your greatest happiness is in loving and being loved. It’s an absolute necessity for you to be emotionally involved. Because of this great need for love, you’re apt to be a very good mate, always adoring, always ready to forgive, as long as your partner shows you the affection you crave. You mustn’t let this love become too overpowering or try to dominate the relationship because it could lead to the loss of all that you seek. Intimacy is extremely important to you and some of your relationships will be based on that alone.
Use your talents to bring joy wherever you go and in every relationship. Continually cultivate new associations and be cheerful, for this is your blueprint.
The Life Path 3 indicates that you entered this plane with a strong sense of creativity and wonderful communication skills. Achievement for you most likely comes through engaging your ingenious expression. A truly gifted 3 possesses the most exceptional innovative skills, normally in the verbal realm, writing, speaking, acting, or similar endeavors. Here we’re apt to find the entertainers of the world, bright, effervescent, sparkling people with optimistic attitudes. The bright side of this path stresses harmony, beauty, and pleasures; of sharing your inventive talents with the world. Capturing your capability in creative self-expression is the highest level of attainment for this life path.
Life Path 3’s generally live to the fullest, often without much worry about tomorrow. This can result in poor money management; you’re simply not concerned. You spend it when you have it, and sometimes even when you don’t.
The 3 loves connecting with people. The characteristics of the 3 are warmth and friendliness, a good conversationalist, social and open. A good talker both from the standpoint of being a delight to listen to, but even more importantly, one who has the ability to listen to others. Accordingly, the life path 3 produces people who are a welcome addition to any social situation and know how to make others feel at home. Your approach to life tends to be exceedingly positive. Your disposition is almost always sunny and openhearted. A happy and often inspired person, you’re constantly seeking and needing stimulation of similar people.
There is a remote side to your 3 Life Path, as well. This comes as a surprise to the native and to those who think they’re well acquainted. The 3 is actually a very sensitive soul. When hurt, you can easily retreat into a shell of morose silence for extended periods. Nonetheless, the 3 eventually copes with all of the many setbacks that occur in life and bounces back for more. It’s usually easy for you to deal with problems because you freely admit their existence without letting them get you down for too long. Because of your own sensitivity to hurt, you have a caring disposition and are usually conscious of other people’s feelings and emotions.
In romance, the 3 is an ardent and loyal lover. Relationships that don’t go well can leave scars that linger. Emotional experiences of all types tend to deeply touch the 3 with the associated drama taking some time to play out. Regrettably, the giving disposition of the 3 often attracts demanding partners. As with most of life’s issues for the 3 Life Path, balance in relationships can be elusive.
Your big test with a 3 Life Path is controlling your highs and lows. You won’t thrive in a routine environment or when you’re placed under dominating management. Slow thinking and overly contemplative people tend to frustrate you. You don’t function well with this type, whether you’re working for them or with them. Your exuberant nature will take you far, especially when you’re able to focus your energies and talents.
The Shadow Side
On the negative side, don’t allow intimate desires to negate your common sense or cause you to be promiscuous. Vanity and a tendency toward wasting yourself and your talents are also a danger, as is a lackadaisical “who cares” attitude.
For the few living on the negative side of this Life Path, a 3 may be so delighted with the joy of living they become frivolous and superficial. You may scatter your abilities and express little sense of purpose. The 3 can be an enigma, for no apparent reason you may become moody and tend to retreat. Escapist tendencies are not uncommon with the 3 life path, and you find it very hard to settle into one place or one position. Guard against being critical of others, impatient, intolerant, or overly optimistic.

Life Path 3 Compatibility
The Life Path 3 person has a natural fit with Life Paths 3, 6, and 9. They get along well with Life Paths 1, 2, and 5. But they find a challenge (or need to compromise) with Life Paths 4, 7, and 8.
Two 3’s (Mike and Joe)
Two 1’s (Myself and Amanda)
Kim – The estrogen shares a Life Path number (1) and the testosterone shares another Life Path number (3). A nice division of hormones 🙂
wow! definitely me 🙂
Ann – I’m glad that it resonated with you.
I can see some parts of this life path which are really, truly, my daughter. Other parts–not quite so much. I want to send this link to her to see what she thinks! Thank you so much for sharing this, Laurie. Can’t wait to see number four on Thursday.
Kathy – For some people their Life Path number fits hand-in-glove; for others it’s just similarities. I don’t know why it works that way. We’ll see what you think about you as it relates to Life Path 4 this coming Tuesday. Have yourself a fantastic weekend!
So, as a 6, I am a natural fit with a 3. Hmmm. Jonathan is a 5. I will hunt around my friends and coworkers and find a couple of 3’s to do some comparisons.
Barbara – It’ll be interesting to read your thoughts on any 3’s that you find. I think it’s a hoot that Jonathan and I are both 5’s. You have noticed our angelic wings and halos, right?
Laurie, I don’t think I have any 3’s in my immediate family but I’ll bet I know some! They are the kind that are fun to hang with.
Sandi – I know lots of 3’s and they are, indeed, fun to hand out with. Our son’s a 3.
Hey Laurie what a wonderful blog you have. I absolutely LOVE the header, the Pix of the sand w/the stones is marvelous and the slide show is FANTASTIC!!! Your smile is infectious and I will be back for more – especially when you get to number 5. Till next time then!!
Alison – Thank you for the compliments, I’m tickled pink that you enjoy Speaking from the Heart. I’m looking forward to your post tomorrow on Life By Design. (Psssst, I’m a Life Path 5, too)…
And me too Alison!
Laurie I am reading along but not commenting much as you can see. Great series!
Terrill – Whether you leave a comment, or not, I always enjoy a visit from you – and I’m so glad you’re enjoying this series 🙂
Geez, Laurie, I am an 8, not a 3, but I seem to follow the specifications here to a tee, both positive and negative. I’m assuming that there will be carryovers on both sides of the spectrum. This was a fascinating read of Life Path 3, I must say! When hurt, retreating into a shell. How true. But the creativity and self-expression resonate here.
Sam – You’re very astute in that there are, indeed, carryovers with the Life Path numbers (just as there are in the Zodiac signs, and many other areas in life – both physical and metaphysical). I hope you’re having a great weekend! I know that you’re out and about drinking in and soaking up all kinds of culture and I’m looking forward to reading about it Monday in your Monday Morning Diary over on Wonders in the Dark.
Pingback: “Johnny Mad Dog,” “The Company Men,” “The Way Home,” “The Leopard” and off-Broadway play “The Divine Sister” on Monday Morning Diary (January 24) « Wonders in the Dark
“Such heavenly fun should be a sin!” — these enticing words appear on the poster for THE DIVINE SISTER, an off Broadway play that Sam Juliano reviews over at Wonders in the Dark. He’s definitely dangled the carrot for me — if it ever comes to the greater Chicagoland area, I want to see it!
You definitely nailed my personality on the shadow side, and because of old wounds I’ve reigned in some of my more positive traits, at least until people earn the right to enjoy them.
Katrina – I’m glad to know the information resonated with you. Thank you for leaving a comment.
As I read about my life path 3 I could see my entire life revisited in my minds eye. It confirmed so much for me about me. Thanks for being on the web. I will use your words to help me as I flow through the rest of this lifetime.
Bill – I’m glad you enjoyed the information, thank you for letting me know.
I ended up a 3. Wow. Eye-opening. And fun. Thanks!!
Traci – I never met a 3 I didn’t like 🙂
Omg! Im definitely a 3 all the way! My birthday is August 13th 1989 and I’m always the happiest! I do have occasional high highs and low lows(when hurt) I’m sensitive and a lover of all arts and creativity .. I’m highly impatient which I’m changing at the moment and very overly optimistic ! & Love being intimate in relationships ! I love my personality 🙂 thanks for making this more clear for me 🙂
Veronica – I’m glad that Life Path 3 resonates so accurately with you — that’s great!
I am so a 3 but so is the love of my life so passionate at times and at other times we clash so bad.
Dee – I’m glad you resonated with the Life Path 3 description.

Lizzy Cutie – You’re darn tootin’!
wow! i just got my life history in my palm
Elizabeth Ransome – I’m glad this post resonated with you.
It fits me perfectly. Wow. Plus I am a hair stylist.
Allie – I’m glad this post resonated with you, thank you for letting me know.
How do you truly know what your life path is, if you relate to many other paths?
Peggy – Please know that just like Zodiac signs, Life Path numbers are a generalization. Regardless of the numbers (or signs) that you relate to (and what they say), it’s up to YOU to be the very best version of YOU that there is. And if there’s something you don’t like, remember: “Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing.” — Laurie Buchanan
I have read somewhere that if you have repeated core numbers, you’re “imbalanced”. I may sound naive, but what exactly do they mean by being imbalanced?
Reason to why I’m asking this is because I’ve got loads of 3’s in my chart. Though I don’t feel like I’m out of proportion…knock on wood lol. Would it be because of my Bridge Numbers? Just questions I’ve had in mind.
Hearts Desire: 9
Lifepath&Destiny Bridge#: 0 (Which is considered fortunate?)
HeartsDesire&Personality Bridge#: 6 (Is considered to be a creative combination) So I don’t see anything bad about this.
Dambi – From what you’ve shared here, I’d be doing the Snoopy yippee-skippie happy dance! You’re numbers are fantastic and don’t let anyone tell you differently. Here’s a very important piece of advice: “Don’t — ever! — be held hostage by the opinion of others.” — Laurie Buchanan
I just found your blog and I am enthralled, so many interesting things to read! I did the math, found out my number is 3, and read this corresponding post. Absolutely amazing how accurate it is! I am wondering something, how do you feel about addiction fitting into the scheme of things with the numbers theory? I am in recovery, and am wondering, would that be something a 3 is prone to, or is it unrelated? I’m curious on your thought.
Thanks again for such an inspiring blog!
TheMiracleIsAroundTheCorner – I’m glad you resonated with the Life Path 3 information. Thank you for letting me know.
You asked if I feel that certain Life Path numbers are more prone than others to addiction. Let me first say that there will be many who disagree. That said…
In my experience as a holistic health practitioner and transformational life coach addiction is not selective. It can happen to ANY one — regardless of their life path number, zodiac sign, cultural background, academic achievement, gender preference, socioeconomic situation, religious or spiritual connection.
I hope that helps.
